Helping the Homeless

I'm so glad to have the opportunity to help the homeless in our area. No there aren't very many homeless, but even one is cause for concern. Thankfully our local churches of many different denominations have joined together to offer a warm place and a warm meal for the homeless during the winter months. Each church takes a week of time to offer these accommodations.
The churches themselves depend on people to carry this load. So I'm volunteering my time to help out. What a great opportunity to serve our fellow man/woman!
Check out your area to see if a similar program exists. If not then start one! Most churches are willing to help out and it's a commitment of only a week at a time. The more churches that help, the easier the load!

Thanks so much. Sometimes an area has more homeless (or near homeless) than you would ever think. Thanks for your service.
